Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This award winning, copper colored pale ale was the first beer we ever brewed and it's still one of our favorites. We carefully blend German and English malts and add generous portions of American hops for a refreshing citrus aroma with a dry finish.

Enjoyed a pint on tap at the Marriot Columbus Northwest.

Appearance - copper-amber brew with a foam head. Beer was very cold due to the iced pint glass. Notable carbonation and intermittent lacing.

Smell - thin aromas of malt with some faint hoppiness.

Taste - solid flavours of clean and caramel malt. Nice hop finish at the end that finishes a little dry.

Mouthfeel - between the IPA-like hop feel and the carbonation, this is a pretty active brew. Pretty even though.

Drinkability - this is a good beer and worthy of a few. A night out with a couple of these is just the fix.

Serving type: on-tap
